Sufjan Stevens est un artiste touche à tout, on connaissait ses différents projets dans les registres folk, indie et electro, aujourd'hui il se lance dans le hip-hop avec Chopped and Scrooged . Une sortie disponible gratuitement depuis deux jours via Asthmatic Kitty Records , tournée vers le rap tout en faisant un clin d'oeil à Noël. On retrouve ainsi neuf morceaux avec un panel d'artistes assez exceptionnel : Das Racist , Kitty Pryde , Nicki Da B ou encore Heems .
It's hard to be surprised Sufjan Stevens has more Christmas-themed music for the people after releasing a five-volume tribute to the holiday (his second five-volume tribute, at that). Never one to bore us by playing it safe, Stevens employs a battalion of remixers and rappers, including Das Racist , Deerhoof 's John Dietrich, Busdriver , Nicky Da B , Oreo Jones, and Kitty Pryde . Somehow, this isn't the first or strangest marriage of hip-hop and Sufjan; that award still belongs to Jedi Mind Tricks ' 2006 [...]

Indianapolis based Oreo Jones released a free debut LP this week entitled Betty . A deluxe edition digital release and a CD version is available for purchase. If you listen closely, Oreo offers an abstract introduction to his true identity, unraveling to the backdrop of finely tuned electronic and hip hop blending beats. My stand out tracks include Burnt Circle, Frankie, No Coast ft. J-Hex, Wine and Canvas, The Rifle (Bonus) and Cordon Bleu . - Conrad
Indy’s own Oreo Jones is an artist that hadn’t really caught my ear in the past, but that’s not because he isn’t a talented rapper. I have a tendency to overlook a lot of local hip hop because of the scene’s lack presence on the national stage, but Oreo’s debut LP Betty has the potential to change all of that. “Frankie” , “ Needy ” , and “Joseph Kittinger Wings” are probably the three best, straightforward rap songs on Betty , yet they don’t sound anything alike, a testament to Jones’ [...]
Oreo Jones is at the top of Indianapolis' Hip Hop scene. He was voted the #1 local act this year by the Nuvo News, and from the first few tracks I've heard off his new album, Betty , it's a title that is well-deserved. Jones' new LP is his proper debut, and features autobiographical records, party tracks, and a few things in between. The album is free for stream and download, with a deluxe edition for sale. Check it out below.
Rad Summer is extremely proud to release Betty, the debut LP from Oreo Jones, as a free download and purchasable digital deluxe edition and CD! The past year has been a year of growth for Oreo Jones, and the Indianapolis based emcee has documented it in his first full length release Betty. Evolving from the party monster that everyone has come to love on tracks like "Good Times", "Cordon Bleu", and "Reggie Miller", this album finds Oreo delving deeper into his own identity and story with songs like "House Nigga", "Frankie", and "Rotate". Despite the introspection, Betty is [...]

The stars appear to be aligning for Indianapolis rapper Oreo Jones . Fresh off his selection as Indy's best rapper in NUVO's Best of Indy poll , today Jones released the debut single from his forthcoming LP Betty , due to drop via local label Rad Summer on September 4. Always a skillful MC, Jones' rhymes often underscore his acerbic wit and wry sense of humor. " Needy " takes care of business first and jokes second, hitting listeners with a more serious, no nonsense approach. This makes sense given Jones' confession via Twitter that [...]

Rad Summer is extremely proud to present to you Neopolitan, the debut album from Dorsh, as a free download ! Neopolitan is much like the ice cream it is named after. It’ s a mixture of Reggae, Electro, Disco, Soul, Hip-Hop, Rock, Dubstep, and R&B, flavors all blended into one creamy collection. When Dorsh Deans sat down to conceptualize the Neopolitan album, Dorsh realized with his given “Jaminglican” (Jamaican, English, and American) heritage, that he was in a unique position to represent a significantly large group of people authentically. Having spent his [...]
Directed by Jeremy Jace Wallace For the 2 year anniversary of The Delicious EP, Oreo Jones and director Jace transform Oreo's Super Bowl performance at Sun King Brewery into a music video for "Good Times". When the Delicious EP dropped in April 2010, very few people besides Indy's tight-knit hip-hop community had any any clue who Oreo Jones was. Then nearly overnight, Oreo was on the lips and in the headphones of nearly every tastemaker in the country as the lead single "Good Times" shot to the 4th spot on Hypem's Twitter chart. In [...]
What happens when one of the best DJ's in the mid-west collaborates with one of the best hip-hop artists in the mid-west? Apparently if neither has an ego and doesn't mind actually enjoying their work rather than pretending to be hard you get Black Fabio , the side-project from Indianapolis ' Action Jackson and Oreo Jones (both on Rad Summer ). Oreo Jones has an off-the-cuff Das Racist style that works well with Action's indie basement [...]
This great video was directed by Mike Charizopoulus of DRP and stars a few of our friends from Indianapolis (shoutout to the Hoosiers though). When Oreo Jones debuted his Halloween 2010 costume Black Fabio, no one expected it to spawn a concept mixtape that keeps you dancing and laughing front to back. Nine months later and with the help of Action Jackson, that is exactly what’s been created. Just as Fabio was never constrained by wearing a shirt, OJ and Jackson chose not to be encumbered by genre and drew from anything including rap [...]
Black Fabio Official Music Video starring Action Jackson and Oreo Jones! Music video produced by Digital Rabbit. #representindy When Oreo Jones debuted his Halloween costume last year Black Fabio, no one expected it to spawn a concept mixtape that keeps you dancing and laughing front to back. Nine months later and with the help of Action Jackson, that is exactly what's been created. Just as Fabio was never constrained by wearing a shirt, OJ and Jackson chose not to be encumbered by genre and drew from anything including rap to post-punk to moombahton. The "Black Fabio" [...]
